Kellie Pickler turned 31 this week, and in honor of her birthday, it only seems appropriate to blast some of her best songs and sing along.
If you’re looking for a place to start, here are a few to choose from:
Best Days of Your Life
Co-written with Taylor Swift, this was Pickler’s first taste at stardom. It’s upbeat and feels like sweet revenge for the cheating boyfriend who inspired it.
Packed with emotion, this song details Pickler’s troubled childhood experience. If you’re looking for a song that tells a heartfelt story, this is the one to play.
Red High Heels
There’s a reason this song was Pickler’s first gold-certified track. It’s fiery and full of attitude, just like Kellie herself.
Makin’ Me Fall In Love Again
Personally, I absolutely love the music video for this song because it’s got the retro vibe, and it’s peppy. And let’s be honest, it’s basically the less superficial version of “Make Me Like You” from Gwen Stefani.
Hope it was a great one Kellie!
